    Keep in mind that Linux is NOT Microsoft Windows, so getting software designed for MS Windows to work on Linux is a hack job at best. You will likely not get nearly as good performance and the programs may not work correctly, or even work at all.

    WINE is the main free way to try to get EXEs to work. CodeWeavers CrossOver is another way, but it is not free. Its main focus is office applications. Cedega is another non-free option whose sole purpose is gaming.
